Chart success for Uncharted 4 and Doom, while Battleborn has a bad second week

Chart-Track reveals Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is a commercial success as well as a critical one – it has become the fastest selling instalment in the series, beating Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception’s debut week sales by 66%.

As such, Drake occupies the UK chart’s top spot this week.

Bethesda’s DOOM is off to a flying start as well, arriving at #2 and with sales up 67% over DOOM 3. It’s unclear however if Chart-Track is referring to the PC version of DOOM 3 or the Xbox conversion from 2005.

At #3 it’s Call of Duty: Black Ops III. Ratchet & Clanks then drops to #4 while Tom Clancy’s The Division remains at #5.

Far Cry Primal – which has reportedly outperformed sales expectations – sits at #6 for another week, while GTA V falls to #7. At #8 it’s FIFA 16, LEGO Marvel’s Avengers falls to #9 and then at #10 it’s Star Wars Battlefront.

Battleborn, last week’s chart topper, doesn’t have a similar success story as Uncharted and DOOM to share – it’s now at #12. EA Sports UFC 2 and Dark Souls III also depart the top ten his week, incidentally.

There were no other new arrivals in the top 40, although the cumbersomely titled MegaTagmension Blanc + Neptune VS Zombies did manage to take the top spot in the PS Vita chart. We’re starting to notice a pattern here.
